Bolton at Home to front match shirts for community fixture

Local charity Bolton at Home's logo on club's shirts for Middlesbrough game

Bolton Wanderers’ shirts for the upcoming home game against Middlesbrough will carry the Bolton at Home logo as part of the club’s designated community fixture.

Throughout the course of the matchday the club and the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust will help recognise the partnership with local charity Bolton at Home, providers of social housing in and around the borough.

The club’s relationship with Bolton at Home is now in its third season and during that period thousands of local young people have been encouraged to get involved with sport, education and volunteering opportunities.

The club have also donated 1,500 match tickets to Bolton at Home customers, all of whom are engaged in neighbourhood services and active in their local communities.

Thanks to permission from usual sponsors University of Bolton, Bolton at Home’s logo will be printed on the front of the club’s Macron-manufactured home shirts for the televised Sky game at Macron Stadium. The players’ pre-match training kit will also carry the names of several local charities associated with Bolton at Home.

Following the match, Bolton at Home will donate signed shirts to its charity partners for auctions and fundraising.

Jon Lord, chief executive of Bolton at Home, said: “We thank the University of Bolton for their support, which will help make it a special day for our communities to enjoy. Whilst it has been a tough season the club continues to do so much in the community and this shouldn’t be overlooked.”

Phil Mason, head of the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, said: “The partnership with Bolton at Home is very important to us and helps us engage with young people in Bolton whilst narrowing the gap of disadvantage.

“We’d of course like to thank the University of Bolton for their great support. When we approached them about this initiative they had no hesitation in lending their support.”

Vice Chancellor of the University of Bolton Professor George E. Holmes DL added: “We are very proud to be able to support both Bolton Wanderers and Bolton at Home, as a key player in the wider Bolton family.”
